Army Explorers in Space


Published 1958


produced by the Army in 1958 shortly after the successful launch of EXPLORER I. One of the few color Army presentations we've seen of this episode.
Two versions ASF and RM. Real media version is better quality however both are not the greatest. Title has some historical interest.


Run time 13:00
Sponsor US Army
Audio/Visual sound, color

Subject: ARMY EXPLORERS IN SPAAAAACCCCCEEEEE!!!!!!
This late-50s army film documents the first successful American satellite, Explorer 1. At last, we had finally caught up with Sputnik! This has a stripped-down feel to it, unlike the high-tech films of NASA to come. Other than that, its pretty ordinary, but it does have some historical interest.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
